Anker Folio Bluetooth Keyboard Case for iPad Air

Anker Folio Bluetooth Keyboard Case for iPad Air

PowerDrive Lightning 0527

Product Description

Everything you love about your iPad, amplified.

Protection with a flair.

Sporting a sleek synthetic leather exterior, this folio cover looks just like a notebook. Sturdy snap-in brackets and robust fiberglass panels guard your iPad against drops and bumps, while a soft inner lining protects the screen from scratches. So you can be sure of maximum protection without compromising style.

Intelligently intuitive.

By snapping your device to the embedded magnetic strip, the keyboard connects automatically, while the cover provides an upright angle ideal for typing and media playback. For handheld use, the iPad lies flat and securely across the keys. And to trigger your device's sleep or wake mode, simply open or close the cover. Fewer buttons - more automation.

The strong, silent type.

Trade in tapping for typing, and take a break from typos. Low-profile molded keycaps are whisper quiet, while iPad-dedicated hotkeys and an almost full-size layout complete the ideal typing experience. Enjoy a comfortable and efficient keyboard without having to sacrifice portability.

Six-month stamina.

At Anker, quality products just make sense. So we built in a super-sized battery that keeps you going for six months or more between charges, freeing you to worry less and work (or play) more. And after being idle for 10 minutes, the keyboard automatically enters sleep mode. Zzzzzzzz.

  • So far, I'm a happy camper
  • My Logitech Fabricskin Folio broke when I dropped it and I was unable to snap my ipad into the case. Initially I intended to buy another one, but I saw the reviews for this product and I was intrigued.So far, I am pleased with this product. The first thing I noticed was the product packaging, which was sturdy and attractive (and reusable at Christmas time, which is a good thing!). The case is attractive and the microfiber around the keypad is soft helps keep my hands comfortable. The keypress response time is excellent, and when snapped onto the magnet, the angle at which the ipad is displayed is more "upright" than the Fabricskin Folio.At this point, the only reason I didn't give the item 5 stars is because the keys are significantly smaller than the Fabricskin Folio. The keys on that device was closer to a full sized keyboard. I switch back and forth from the ipad case's keyboard to my regular keyboard many times through the day and it's disorienting at first. I think the negative space to the sides of the keybad could be utilized to make the keys bigger instead of surrounding it with the microfiber. I am sure that once I get used to this keyboard, I will liked the case up to its' full 5 stars; Had I used this case first I might not even notice the difference. However, the excellent price of the product helps make up for the smaller keys.All things considered, I would recommend this case to others based on my limited use.

  • Okay case
  • The keyboard itself is great but the case is rather heavy, awkward and bulky for when it's not used as a laptop.First off, the transition to the landscape orientation is rather awkward and not smooth as you have to literally take your iPad out of the holders to have it stand up. As one reviewer stated in their video review, the magnetic strip is also so strong that it pulls the iPad out of the case when you're trying to put it back into the portrait orientation so be cautious of that so that your iPad doesn't fall to it death.Secondly, how the case folds back(like a book) for portrait view is rather awkward and feels unnatural. I feel like this case was only made with the intention for the laptop like view in mind and is just flexible enough to style it into this orientation.Thirdly, my camera for my iPad is rendered useless as the camera hole covers half the lens and resultantly blurs out my photo... Even without this defect, I wouldn't recommend taking photos with this case because your keyboard would be flopping around in your face if you were to take a picture with the back camera. Welp, that goes for my camera adventures. I guess it saves me the awkward situation of "that guy" who takes pictures of things with their iPad..Overall, this cover will do but it is not perfect by any means.Bonus: contacted customer service about this camera hole defect and they were like, " lol that sucks. Did you get the right case for the iPad model? Oh okay, we'll make sure to tell our product development team about it."

  • Great Case - very simple but functional
  • This is a great case. Simple and very sturdy. I love the magnet and it keeps it secure on you lap. The keyboard comes on and goes off right away so you do not have to worry about hitting the keyboard and having turn on when you are using the onscreen keyboard. Great value. I have owned the Clamcase and Crux Case that were 5x the price and I prefer this case. We will see how it lasts.

I got this for Christmas.  It worked for awhile but now it doesn't go on when the ipad snaps onto the magnetic strip.  A green light comes on but, then it doesn't type.

The magnetic strip is not involved in how the keyboard case communicates with your iPad. The keyboard case is a Bluetooth device. It sounds like your two components aren't paired properly (they probably were at one time and something changed, maybe Bluetooth has been shut off or the profile deleted). For help with this, scroll up on this page to where you see "Instruction Manuals & Drivers" and use it as a guide to pair your units. For further assistance just drop an email to support@ianker.com

No support for forward-Delete?

Just received mine.  It appears that it doesn't support foward-Delete.  On Macs (and the Logitech Ultrathin keyboard for iPad Air), this is accomplished via fn-Delete.  On this product, fn-Delete simply kills the Bluetooth connection.  Am I missing something?  Is there some other way of accomplishing forward-Delete that I'm just not seeing?

I hope there's a workaround, as I love the Anker keyboard but this will be a deal-breaker for me.

The delete button alone should do this, does that not work?

The Delete key works as a standard delete key -- that is, backing over the text, deleting what is to the left of the cursor.  This is fine, but it's not forward-Delete.

Forward-Delete "sucks up" what is to the right of the cursor, deleting what is forward from the cursor's own position.

A small thing, but essential for some of us.  MacBook keyboards allow it;  Logitech's Ultrathin allows it, simply by allowing the Delete key to be *just* a delete key (and not doubling it up with some custom function like Bluetooth toggling that apparently overrides iOS' native fn-Delete recognition).

I love the Anker TC980 otherwise, but if it can't do forward-Delete, it will be endlessly frustrating for me and I'll have to return it.  I'll stick with my Logitech Ultrathin and hope that Anker eventually releases a redesign that lets the Delete key just be a Delete key and doesn't override Apple's own naturalized functionality.

Scarce availability on Amazon.com
I see one seller on Amazon.com, charging US$145.00 which seems very high. Nobody else sells this product. Will you make more of them available soon?

I understand Anker does that when products are out of stock to discourage people from buying it.

We do work closely with Amazon to limit other people trying to sell our products but it's very difficult to control other sellers on the Amazon Market Place.

We're happy to advise that the AnkerDirect store now has it available on Amazon and eBay again!

Try pairing it with another Bluetooth device. This will help show if the problem is with the keyboard or your iPad.

Then get in touch with our customer service guys at support@ianker.com and let them know, they'll be able to help further.

Compatible yes. Do you mean in terms of fit, as the Air 2 is a bit slimmer. I haven't physically snapped the Air 2 in yet.

The iPad Air 2 will connect with the keyboard but it won't fit with the base properly.

Foreign language input
Hi, I'm thinking about buying this keyboard for my IPad Air, but I need to know if there is a shortcut that I can use to switch the language input.  I use three different languages on my iPad, and on the virtual keyboard on the screen, I can just tap the little globe sign to switch from language to language (the keys stay the same, but the input changes). Please let me know if this is possible on your keyboard.  Thank you!

Yes, you can press Command + Space bar and it'll switch between input languages.

Using the keyboard
Can anyone tell me how to find the £ (GBP) sign on this keyboard.

If you have the UK version then the £ sign will be coupled with the number '3' key. If you have the American version then it isn't on there.
